Mr Brown starts new online venture to promote civil discourse

Mr Brown starts new online venture to promote civil discourse

Tags: , , , ,

Well, not really new but new enough… here is yousayisaywhoconfirm.sg!

Called yousayisaywhoconfirm.sg – due to blogger Mr Brown’s fascination with this particular army phrase – it is actually an initiative by four prominent interweb people who want to have more intelligent discussions with a bit of funny to get to the truth.

No more headless, faceless, ballless, nameless and aimless trolls talking nonsense and only knowing how to bitch and whine about everything and nothing in particular!

No more anonymity! No more faux-democratic speaking out!

Now there is humour- and intelligence-infused discussion!

So who are they?

Mr Brown: Our favourite, Godfather of Singapore bloggers.

Miyagi: Also quite lao jiao blogger.

Adrianna: Techy, lao jiao blogger.

Belinda Ang: Not as well known but quite lao jiao too.

(“Lao jiao”, loosely translated from Hokkien to England, means “old bird”.)

So why did they start the site? According to the YSISWC About Us page, because they feel “song”, which loosely translated from Hokkien to England, means, “stimulated”.

And Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also mentioned this site in his National Day Rally this year! And this was only started in August this year! Fwah zhai! (“Fwah” is synonymous with “Wah lan eh!” or “Woah!”, while “Zhai”, when tightly translated from Mandarin to England, means “narrow”, but in fact, means “awesome”.)

Here are some snippets:

– Belinda thinks that Minister Yaacob Ibrahim should be given the benefit of the doubt because his 16-year-old son has dual citizenship doesn’t make Yaacob incapable of discharging his ministerial duties ably.

– Miyagi thinks the repetitive and persistent postings about anti-captivity on Resorts World Sentosa Facebook page does not mean it has been hit by cyber harassment. It is just people taking their stand and being louder than usual.

Based on these postings so far, New Nation Man approves.
